RE: Faulkner at Meadowridge
you are correct. I don't watch them myself nor cop shows nor murder mysteries nor much of the news. If something unexpectedly horrific shows up in a movie theatre, I've been known to walk out immediately and create an uproar doing it.

It's also more about control - over life -- like playing God -- but with negative power. Once you kill, it becomes easier and easier so you have no feelings about doing it again and again. That's why nazi's or isis kills millions, because they erase their feelings for the sake of authority of a man-made doctrine or religion. When people play god, it's essentially devil worship.

The guy must have had a particular bent against women. He lived alone. Yes, horrible undeserved treatment.

RE: Faulkner at Meadowridge
I'm not related to Sarah. I went to school and was friends with her older daughter. I just remember Sarah's face and heart as being an adult I wanted to be around although I'd only been to their house once. But not Carvel. He scared me. I haven't read the article, but the man who we think killed them was an itinerant who sought jobs around the neighborhood. He is linked to killing maybe 2 or 3 other women in the area, particularly known for another just down the street from me who was so dearly loved by the whole community (see memorial for Rebecca "Dolly" Davis / Grace Cemetery / Elkridge). She was killed in the same manner. The man was local and worked in a horrible place that took in dead and/or he killed animals and turned them into glue. So he had a lot of experience killing. Anyway, the Faulkners weren't trying to help him against his wishes. The guy must have gotten mad very easily but nobody could have seen he was so off balance.

they were murdered. Sarah was a very sweet woman and that makes it all the more sad.

Thank you so much for the photo of the grave memorial. It is perfect - no need for retaking. Theirs was such a sad case.

RE: George W. Bennett
I love those kind of stories! I found the book on amazon used so I am having it sent here. I do get to Baltimore 1 or 2 times per year so I usually go to a few cemeteries (Baltimore, Greenmount sometimes Loudon or Western) as that is where most of my further back ancestors are born, but I am still struggling with a few missing people! But this is good- I am waiting to hear on George Bennets wife Ann so I will keep you posted. Toni

Wow! I am jealous- I do this pretty much all online as I live overseas so that sounds just too good! I cannot imagine having anything that old. But the book sounds good and I will try to order it!

I think he may be in Greenmount- I have a call into them about his wife who should be there but they also cannot find her (even though her obit says that is where she is buried) - keep me posted on what you find- thanks! Toni

I checked Loudon Parks records and they don't have a George W. Bennett in their cemetery. Do you know where you got that information from? I have checked his obits and they don't say Loudon.

RE: William Brayshaw
Hi Kim,

I plan to visit Cedar Hill Cemetery tomorrow and continue grave photography. I will check for Julia's stone, but I don't remember any for her.
The interment Records have Wm in E - 9 - 9 top while Julia is in E - 9 - 1.

Are you related to the Brayshaws?

I appreciate this information, there is a drawing I have of the sections in the cemetery. But it does not show any As section, do you have any knowledge of this?

P.S. I forgot to ask, did Aaron have 2 wives? I noticed that he already linked but thought I'd ask to make sure, lol. I meant to ask before accepting the edits. Kindly let me know.

Hello again. :) I see you sent you edit request to link Aaron to Mildred as a spouse. Is Aaron the father of A. Leslie and Howard Davis Lewis? Thought I'd ask, I can link him to the children if he is the father. :)

RE: 139357085 Lewis
Whew, lol. Okay, I've added the images that I took last year to all the memorials and have also added a map of their whereabouts, too in some of the memorials (in Kathryn, Leslie G. and John D.'s memorials).

I examined my photos and found other markers that supported my findings. I generally take panoramic view images as well so that I know what other markers are nearby). Furthermore, I included GPS information as well in each memorial as well as I have corrected the plot information. Cheers! :)

RE: 139357085 Lewis
Hello there and thank you for you inquiry.

I was there at Druid Ridge Cemetery in person last year and I must have missed adding photos of their markers after I created their memorials. I noted that another contributor has posted images to their memorials in case you were interested. I found the images I took last year and I see why I didn't post them, specifically to A. Leslie Lewis and Leslie G. Lewis. This is a double sided marker and I took images of the names on the big marker for these persons but didn't get a whole photo of the big marker. I found my images of their markers but my photos wouldn't enhance the memorial as they pretty much the same shots (however, mine were taken in the sunshine). Maybe I'll add them in case.

In regards to the large marker, they share this marker with Kathryn W. Lewis, John D. Lewis, Mildred L. Lewis, Fielding H. Lewis, Leslie G. Lewis and A. Leslie Lewis. Around this large shared marker there are small individual markers. I am going to add photos to those others memorials right after I send you this message.

I had every intention of going back again but unfortunately, I haven't been back in that area since last year. I also noted that I might have listed them in Annandale Section by accident when in fact they are actually in Maple Slope Section. I will review my images again and see and I will let you know. If you wish, I can post an image in one of the memorials indicating more or less where they are. I can see another familiar marker right behind this marker that is in the Annandale Section. There is a road (in the cemetery) that separates these 2 sections.

I hope this information helps in case you were still interested in visiting and photographing.

Cheers! :)

Hi Kim,
Aha, you found 'em! Great!
I have family in Althea so that's why I would have been in that section wandering around & taking a few photos.

RE: Swindell edits
Hi Kim : yes, by the way, the office has moved to another bldg. I found this out abt. a month ago myself. I'm retired and therefore free during the work week. I have found it best to go to a cemetery office during the work week in mid morning or early afternoon. Never at lunch time, nor too early or too late.
Most cemetery offices are not open on the weekends.
So, I never go to an office on a weekend.
I entered the death notice for Richard, Jr. You will find it in his memorial. I overlooked your message yesterday.
The nicest folks I've found are at New Cathedral Cemetery. They have a computer database right in the office as well as the old log books.
Aha, so I may have gotten the Section O info from you. Well, you'll find those folks eventually so it'll be corrected.
Oh, the reason for the shift in the office at Loudon is because it is also a funeral home. I think they just wanted to separate the two aspects of the cemetery.
I carry jugs of water, a brush & a big sponge in my trunk for cleaning markers. Absolutely NO detergent of any kind. Sometimes a mirror will help throw light just is the right way to help read inscriptions.
Find A Grave has a Facebook page. Some cleaning info pops up on there as well as some interesting stories.
OK, I'm starting to ramble,
Ciao for now,

RE: Swindell edits
Hi Kim:
Looks like I entered Section 'O' so they are probably there somewhere. The office will give you a map and an idea as to where the lot is. I say "an idea" because Loudon Park sometimes is not too friendly or helpful. Ask for the name on the first grave in their row and/or names near by. That info will help a lot.
I clicked on the photo and saw that I had entered it in May of 2013 so it would have been cooler then. I usually only go on dry & cool days & even in winter when it's not too cold.
Many of the tombstones I've taken photos of have been near ancestors of mine & so while there I have just randomly chosen a few to photo.
I walk with a cane nowadays so don't do very much wandering around. I only wander a bit while researching some ancestor.
Tell your cousins to definitely join. I'll be happy to transfer the memorials to them.
Why not go back to that overturned tombstone & look at it again. Take a jug of water & a soft bristle brush ... nothing abrasive ... and see if you can clean it some. Then take several photos from different angles. Read in FAQ what NOT to do when cleaning a stone. (maybe you already have & if so I apologize for playing teacher) I'm fascinated by those overturned ones.
Thanks for the update,
